Previous generations were dumb enough that we could fool them into accepting anything to be 'patriots'.
So in the end he is actually praising the millenials. Too bad the ones from the previous generations made sure the millenials (and everybody afterwards) would be thoroughly screwed and excluded from their 'we have the power and the money' club.
I wonder if anybody proposing such idiocy have taken 10 seconds to think about what would happen if the opposite party got into power and decided to abuse it against them. To me the answer is simple: if it can be abused by your 'enemy' to screw you then don't pass it. At the very least be coherent when playing the 'us vs them' game.
There is this country where there are two main political forces. The people from one side are often called communists (which may be true but the word isn't some sort of swearing per se) and other funny names while the other side is called fascists (which may technically be true but again the word is not some sort of swearing) and other funny names. One side believes their own team is the best and everything the other does and says is offensive. The other is exactly the same.
The tool Google is implementing gets widely abused, results get screwed up, nobody gives a fuk to the country as long as the other team is in the mud and my team gets whatever it wants. And everybody loses.
I'm talking about my country but I suspect you could add many others in this story.
I wonder if this warrant remains and they find out the 100k people that searched for the name because some news on the person was out and then they start indiscriminately raiding, I don't know, thousands of homes.. I wonder if this will make people stop listening to megalomaniac police wishes and start demanding law enforcement reined in...
It's enervating when some group/people under criticism fro something take actions that not only hurts their cause when they are mostly right but also endangers others that need things to be kept balanced. Shame on Facebook. Maybe if they are thoroughly screwed in Israel they'll think twice before doing it elsewhere.
These agencies are a cancer. A cancer is nothing but cells gone rogue due to mutations that slowly kill the host. Take your conclusions.
Anyway, just make your name unsearchable on said social platforms (and don't use your full name for added security). When the agent asks for handlers say you don't like social platforms because they make connections superficial. At the very least we can defend against it.
Just imagien what the girl could do with 1/10 th of that money... Oh well, even so it's good to see such things working. Let's hope that the publication of the data don't attract the vultures to this site as well and make it go fully legal. And fully useless.
That would be more correct. But free market will eventually fail when we put the human factor in it. You see, even disregarding the markets where the entrance costs are insanely high that only a few large companies can dip their toes you have market concentration everywhere. It's been a tactic for instance for large supermarket chains enter an area and keep the prices low at losses to kill the competition. Because they can absorb the losses, the local competition usually can't.
It's not that there isn't free market at work, far from it. But sometimes it works precisely where there are regulations to level the playing field.
Were the responsible for the excessive redacting punished somehow? Did they lose their jobs or took a financial loss? Because $50k is a drop in the ocean of the agency budget and it doesn't hurt anywhere on those in charge. So yeah, unless this takes form of a real punishment to those in charge or costs the reelection of a few politicians nothing is going to change.
Trump is a bigot and this will not change. Expect him to keep trying for the next 4 years. It hasn't been 2 months since the moron started and most of the world (and the sane Americans) already think he's been on the job 2 months too much.
I would argue for at least a second redundant network ran by different folks than the first. I'd also argue the deployment should be mandated to anywhere within determined conditions such as radius from the center of the towns, population density and possibly others with farther places attended by wireless solutions when deploying the physical solution gets too onerous comparing to what's going to be earned from providing the service.
But every infra-structure should be treated the same: one single network (either with a second redundant one or ways to provide the service from different links like some electric grids) that many companies can operate in. I'd argue it should be owned by the Govt and maintained in a concession model but that could be too Commie for some.
